Big Stick Media Completes Purchase of Who2beton Website

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - July 17, 2007) - Big Stick Media Corporation (TSX VENTURE:BSM) is pleased to announce today that its wholly-owned subsidiary, IGC Entertainment Corporation ("IGC"), has completed the purchase of all of the assets related to the website www.who2beton.com (the "W2 Website") from 1402487 Ontario Limited ("W2"), an Ontario based corporation, for an initial cash outlay of $6,850. The effective date of the closing is July 16, 2007.

"The W2 Website purchase represents an opportunity to strengthen our portfolio of sports information assets in Canada," said Christopher Kape, Big Stick Media's President and CEO. "The W2 Website provides a broad range of information for sports enthusiasts including information relating to Canadian football and professional hockey, two areas of opportunity for IGC."

In addition to the purchase of the assets, Lawrence Rabie, the principal of W2, has been engaged as an employee of IGC to assist in the integration and continued operation of the W2 Website.

"The integration of the Who2beton product will compliment Big Stick Media's existing portfolio of sports information assets," said Mr. Rabie. "The combined offering will appeal to a broader group of subscribers and I believe it will deliver impressive results for IGC."

"This acquisition benefits Big Stick Media in two significant ways: by integrating the W2 assets with our own, we can capitalize on efficiencies; and perhaps more importantly we have added Lawrence to our executive team. The addition of his 10 years of experience is another important step toward our goal of becoming the dominant player in the sports information sector," continued Mr. Kape.

Subsequent to the purchase, the vendor is entitled to receive, in addition to the initial purchase price consideration, 50% of the net profit the W2 Website is able to generate until November 30, 2015 (to an aggregate maximum of $3,000,000). In the event the W2 Website does not perform as expected, between November 1, 2007 and November 30, 2008, Big Stick Media has the right to sell back the assets to W2 for $1 plus the aggregate advertising expenditure made over the time period that W2 was under IGC's umbrella.

As of the date hereof, Big Stick Media has 63,415,693 issued and outstanding common shares.
